ROSA PONSELLE AUTOGRAPH

489px-Rosa_Ponselle.jpg

Rosa Ponselle was born on January 22, 1897 – died on May 25, 1981. Ponselle was an American operatic soprano. She sang mainly at the New York Metropolitan Opera and is generally considered by music critics to have been one of the greatest sopranos of the past 100 years.  She was born Rosa Ponzillo on January 22, 1897, in Meriden, Connecticut, the youngest of three children. Her parents were Italian Neapolitan immigrants. Rosa had an exceptionally mature voice at an early age and, at least in her early years, sang on natural endowment with little, if any, vocal training. Instead, her early prowess as a piano student (which was cultivated by a local music teacher, Anna Ryan, the organist of a nearby Catholic church), seemed to incline Rosa to instrumental rather than vocal music. But with the influence and example of her older sister, Carmela, who was then pursuing a career as a cabaret singer, Rosa began to augment her engagements as a silent-movie accompanist in and around Meriden by singing popular ballads to her audiences while the projectionist changed film reels.  Her last operatic performance was as Carmen on April 22, 1937, in a Met tour performance in Cleveland. She was 40 years old, at the height of her popularity, and apart from a receding upper register, still in magnificent voice. Ponselle did not consciously or purposely retire after that Cleveland Carmen in 1937; she just let her career slip away.  Although she never again appeared on the concert or opera stage, Ponselle continued to sing at home for friends, who reported that her voice was as magnificent as ever. This was confirmed in 1954, when RCA Victor came to Villa Pace and recorded Ponselle singing a wide variety of songs. In the late 1940s, Ponselle became the guiding force of the fledgling Baltimore Civic Opera Company, providing coaching and voice lessons for the young singers who appeared with the company. Among those who coached with her during their Baltimore Civic Opera appearances at the start of their careers were Beverly Sills, Sherrill Milnes, Plácido Domingo and James Morris. Ponselle died at the Villa Pace near Baltimore, Maryland on May 25, 1981. She is buried in Druid Ridge Cemetery in Baltimore.

In 1994, she became the Chairman of Lincoln Center and then, in 2002, of the Metropolitan Opera, stepping down in 2005.

In 1978, Sills announced she would retire on October 27, 1980, in a farewell gala at the New York City Opera.

With her daughter at her bedside, Beverly Sills succumbed to cancer on July 2, 2007, at the age of 78.

PAULINE HALL AUTOGRAPH

pauline-hall-autograph.jpg

Pauline Hall (Pauline Fredericka Schmidgall) was born in 1860 – died in 1919. Pauline Hall was a singer. One of the most popular turn‐of‐the‐century prima donnas, she began her career as a dancer in her native Cincinnati in 1875. Shortly thereafter she joined the Alice Oates Opera Company, leaving it to spend time touring in straight plays with Mary Anderson. By 1880 she was working for E. E. Rice, who cast her in several of his musical productions, giving her, among others, the trouser role of the hero Gabriel in a revival that year of Evangeline. Her shapely figure allowed her to take men's parts, as she did most notably in the title role of Ixion (1885). However, her greatest success came when she played the title role in the first American production of Erminie (1886). In 1892 she portrayed the hero Earl Trevelyan in a comic opera written especially for her, Puritania. In all, she played in over two dozen Broadway operettas. Her last appearance came just before her death, when she created the role of the impoverished old prima donna in The Gold Diggers (1919). Original Pauline Hall Autograph, signed on cut paper.

CHUBBY CHECKER AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO

chubby checker auto photo.jpg

Chubby Checker was born Ernest Evans on October 3, 1941. Checker is an American singer-songwriter best known for popularizing the The Twist with his 1960 hit cover of Hank Ballard's R&B hit "The Twist". In September 2008, "The Twist" topped Billboard's list of the most popular singles to have appeared in the Hot 100 since its debut in 1958. His material during his 1960s heyday was recorded for Cameo-Parkway Records and along with the label's other material, became unavailable after the early 1970s because of the company's internal legal disputes. For decades, almost all compilations of Checker's hits consisted of re-recordings. A dance-floor cover version of The Beatles' "Back in the USSR" was released in 1969 on Buddah Records, but only charted at #82. It was Checker's last chart appearance until 1982. He also recorded a psychedelic album in the early '70s that was initially only released in Europe. Originally the album was named "Chequered!", but renamed "New Revelation" in later releases. To this day, Checker dislikes to talk about the album. Despite his mixed feelings towards his biggest hit single, Checker has always been able to capitalize on its enduring popularity. In 1987, he recorded a new version of "The Twist" with rap trio The Fat Boys. The lyrics to this new version implied he was pleased with his association with it. Checker also sang the song in a commercial for Oreo cookies in the early 1990s. In 2008, he performed "The Twist" in venues ranging from the Daytona 500 to The Opie and Anthony Show. In 2008 Chubby Checker's "The Twist" was named the biggest chart hit of all time by Billboard magazine. Billboard looked at all singles that made the charts between 1958 and 2008. Checker had a #1 single on Billboard's dance chart in July 2008 with "Knock Down the Walls". He also owns his own restaurant and continues to perform on a regular basis.

Tony Bennett was born Anthony Dominick Benedetto on August 3, 1926. Bennett is an American singer of popular music, standards and jazz. Raised in New York City, Bennett began singing at an early age. He fought as an infantryman with the U.S. Army in the final stages of the European Theatre of World War II. Afterwards, he developed his singing technique, signed with Columbia Records, and had his first number one pop hit with "Because of You" in 1951. Several top hits such as "Rags to Riches" followed in the early 1950s, and then he further refined his approach to encompass jazz singing. He reached an artistic peak in the late 1950s with albums such as The Beat of My Heart and Basie Swings, Bennett Sings and in 1962 with his signature song, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco". His career and his personal life then suffered an extended downturn during the height of the rock music era. Bennett staged a remarkable comeback in the late 1980s and 1990s, putting out gold record albums again and expanding his audience to the MTV Generation while keeping his musical style intact. He remains a popular and critically praised recording artist and concert performer in the 2000s.
